Elizabeth Dubois Launches a Podcast on Political Communication

Posted on Wednesday, September 30, 2020

The Centre for Law, Technology and Society is delighted to announce that CLTS Faculty member Dr. Elizabeth Dubois has launched Wonks and War Rooms, a new podcast where political communication theory meets on the ground strategy.


In academia, there are a lot of theories on how political communication works. Can these theories be applied to real-world scenarios? That is exactly the question Dr. Elizabeth Dubois aims to answer through her podcast. 

Wonks and War Rooms is a podcast where political communication theory meets on the ground strategy. In each episode, Dr. Elizabeth Dubois picks a political communication theory, explains it to a practitioner, and then they have a chat about whether or not it makes sense at all out in the world of politics and communications. She chats with political staffers, journalists, comms experts, lobbyists, activists and other political actors.They will be talking through examples in the applied world of politics and communication to illustrate just how obscure (or super helpful) that theory actually is.

New episodes are set to be released every Wednesday morning.
